Grand Floridian Cafe - Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa

Over Thanksgiving Break, we had breakfast at the Grand Floridian Cafe, a table service restaurant at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.

The Grand Floridian Cafe used to be one of our favorite restaurants at Disney World, but after a few not so great experiences with food and service, we did not return for a while.  Their allergy-friendly menu had a mix of breakfast and lunch items to choose from when we dined there.

Carnation Cafe - Disneyland Park

On New Year's Day, we had breakfast at Carnation Cafe on Main Street U.S.A. at Disneyland Park.  I made advance dining reservations for 10:20, so we could ride some of our favorite attractions before the park got too crowded.

Gluten-friendly breakfast options include the pancake breakfast, Classic Eggs Benedict, Oscar's Choice: All-American Breakfast, Mickey-shaped waffles, ham and cheese omelet, spinach and tomato egg white frittata, and sides of hickory-smoked bacon, sausage links, and seasonal fruit. My friend Sarah from Gluten-Free & Dairy-Free at WDW recently tried the Oscar's Choice, which you can read about here.

Fatamorgana Gelato - Los Angeles, California

On our drive home from Disneyland yesterday, we stopped at Fatamorgana Gelato in Studio City.

The founder of Fatamorgana Gelato has celiac disease, so everything in the shop is 100% gluten free.

Smokejumpers Grill - Disney California Adventure Park

Earlier today, we had lunch at Smokejumpers Grill, a quick service restaurant in Disney California Adventure Park.

I never order hamburgers at quick service restaurants at Disney World or Disneyland, but I had heard that Smokejumpers Grill makes an amazing gluten free hamburger, so I decided to give it a try.

Trattoria al Forno Dinner - Disney's BoardWalk

Over Thanksgiving Break, my family had dinner at Trattoria al Forno, a table service restaurant on Disney's BoardWalk.  Trattoria al Forno, which serves Italian cuisine, has been one of our favorite restaurants at Disney World since it opened.  It is a short walk from the back entrance of Epcot, which is located between the United Kingdom and France pavilions.

Trattoria al Forno uses gluten free breadcrumbs in all of their dishes, which means that fried calamari, meatballs, and chicken Parmesan are all safe options.  Most allergy-friendly menus at Disney World will only include dishes that meet the standard of being safe for at least four allergies.  If you see a dish you are interested in on the regular menu, and it is not on the allergy-friendly menu, have your server check for you or ask to speak to a chef.

Sanaa - Thanksgiving Dinner

Even before we moved to California, we started talking about what time of the year would be good to return to Orlando, and decided that we wanted to spend Thanksgiving Break at Disney World.

One of my favorite meals of the year is Thanksgiving dinner, so I was not super excited about missing out on some of our favorite dishes, but we decided that we would make our Thanksgiving feast for Christmas. We made advance dining reservations at Sanaa, a table service restaurant at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village, for Thanksgiving dinner.  We chose Sanaa, because it is one of our favorite restaurants at Disney World, and I figured it was my best chance to eat a great Thanksgiving meal.

Spice Road Table - Epcot

Last week, we had lunch at Spice Road Table, a table service restaurant in the Morocco Pavilion at Epcot. 

 I made advance dining reservations for a Candlelight Dining Package, so we would be guaranteed seats at the Candlelight Processional the last day of our Thanksgiving Break trip.
